Նստեք, գնանք / Get In, Let's Go

Մտքով Սեւան գնալ է անցնում, բայց գրպանում հազիվ ճանապարհի սնիկերսի փող կա, գնացք էլ չկա: Ու չնայած ավտոստոպը Հայաստանում այտքան էլ տարածված չէ, բայց, փաստորեն, լավ էլ հնարավոր է։ What happens when the heart wants a day on the shores of Lake Sevan but you hardly have enough for a train ticket and a bar of snickers but the train is not working? Would you consider hitchhiking? A group of girls did.

EVN: A space for critical discourse and new narratives.

In EVN Report’s news roundup for the week of November 9, four soldiers are killed in an accident and another 22 injured in southern Armenia, the country and political forces continue to prepare for upcoming snap parliamentary elections, another set of corruption cases revealed and more.    

Despite the efforts of the government and the support of three out of the four political forces represented in the National Assembly, the amendments to Armenia’s Electoral Code did not pass and on December 9 of this year, Armenia will go to the polls to elect its 7th parliament. Hamazasp Danielyan, a member the Prime Minister's Special Commission on Electoral Reform explains how the failure to change the Electoral Code might affect the upcoming elections.  

For young countries the challenge is often state-building and nation-building. In implementing transitional justice, there also has to be a strong element of vigilance and prioritization paired with a stong vision of transition by the leadership, according to Barney Afako, Esq.  Listen to Afako's full address delivered during the transitional justice symposium in Yerevan.

  • When we launched EVN Report on March 16, 2017 in Yerevan, our mission was to be the first reader-supported Armenian publication. But we had to prove to you, our reader, what we were made of. So, for the past year we have written extensively and critically about issues impacting our lives in Armenia and the Diaspora. Our goal was to elevate the conversation, to bring meaning and context to our own unique digital town square. We have also been a platform where the world can take a peek inside our complexities, hardships, accomplishments and victories. If you read something that meant something on EVN Report, then we are asking you to support us so that we maintain our independence and are accountable to you.
